The Kia Sonet has an expansive range of trim levels that you can choose from. If you have bought a mid-level variant like the HTX and would like some upgrades, we have got one for you. Full story Below.
The Kia Sonet has been a success story for the brand ever since its release in September 2020. It has already sailed past 10,000 units sold to happy customers. Prices for the Kia Sonet start at Rs 6.71 lakh and goes up to Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom) for the all bells and whistles GTX Plus Turbo DCT. It is a feature-packed car and comes with multiple engine/gearbox options and has numerous safety measures that do not even come as options in its rivals in the segment.
But what are the options for the Kia Sonet if you want to splurge some cash on aftermarket products? Surely such a new vehicle in the segment won’t have many options. Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are already several third-party manufacturers who have started offering upgrades to your Sonet right now.
TheKia Sonet in the pictures is the HTX variant, it is a mid-level trim in the range which means you get a halfway house of sorts when it comes to features and goodies. Not as bare-bones as the HTE, but not as richly packed as the GTX as well. One of the glaring omissions in the HTX trim is that it only comes with steelies, i.e., steels wheels which are a facsimile of real alloys and undoubtedly one of the first things the owner would like to upgrade. And Plati Alloys are offering you an upgrade with these delicious wheels you can see the pictures. These are 16-inch rims in a machined black finish, giving it a nice dual-tone job and since it has been already fitted to the vehicle, you can see how well it goes with the design of the Sonet. You can visit Plati Alloys’ website www.platiindia.com or contact them at 9915704380 for more information on the product.
The Kia Sonet comes with three engine options, 2 petrol, and 1 diesel. The 1.2-litrr petrol makes 83Ps/115Nm of peak figures and is paired with a 5-speed manual while the 1.0 turbo-petrol makes 120Ps/172Nm of ax power and torque and is mated to a 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT. The 1.5-litre oil-burner comes in either 100ps/240Nm or 115ps/250Nm states of tune and you get two gearbox choices, a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed auto.
